The Carbon Sync Story
Carbon Sync’s Vision
The Carbon Sync story includes our vision, that guides all that we do. Our vision is a Western Australian South West Land Division displaying healthy functioning ecosystem processes, rich biological diversity and abundant wildlife. Furthermore, it will have well-covered living soils, rich in organic matter, streams and rivers running clean and full of life and clean air. Finally, its farms will be producing nutrient-rich food and fibre, and there will be thriving human communities interacting in harmony with the environment.
Carbon Sync’s History
The Carbon Sync story began back in 2007, when Louise Edmonds founded Intuit Earth, the parent company of Carbon Sync. It was conceived as a carbon business, but 2007 was prior to the establishment of Australia’s legislated carbon markets and methods. At this time, there was no Australian carbon farming market. Furthermore, there was little scientific understanding of the processes that create soil carbon in agriculture and the methods to verify this.
In 2014, Louise relaunched Intuit Earth as a compost manufacturer and through this business, developed a deep understanding of the challenges faced by farmers.
In 2018, the Australian Government launched a viable methodology for the monetisation of soil carbon. Louise responded to this opportunity and launched Carbon Sync. Since 2018, Louise has been developing the vision and strategy and gathering a wide network of experts and collaborators.
Carbon Sync’s Mission
Carbon Sync’s story also includes our mission. The mission is to position agriculture as the solution to climate change, biodiversity loss, and improved human and animal health. We will demonstrate, through ecosystem monitoring and collection of high-integrity environmental and economic data, that:
